Hal Williams and his roommate, Will Knot, battle an enemy from Hal's past, a ferocious and powerful Elmo doll. Will the combined wits of Hal and Will be enough to stop this vicious creature, or will their lives come to a tragic end. Watch the film to find out.

Hahaha. That was pretty funny. Some of the music was just bad...but some was really good and fit really well. Good effects too. That magic wand effect looked really good. Good acting, and good movement of the elmo. I thought it was too long in my opinion. Overall..funny movie..good effects..4/5.

SOIL rocks!

that's a wonderful example that the most important parts of an entertaining movie are still the plot and the performance of the actors! great production! and don't you dare doing something against that cool beard!

Very nice movie indeed, though my music choice would have been diffrent I think its worth 5/5 because this movie is the first movie who succeedes to scare me once. When the Elmo puppet is gliding behind hal (or what's his name?) in the scene were he find the bear killed.
Very funny to watch, dindn't bore me a single second.

That was crazy! Even from the trailer, I knew it would be funny. And God it was! I loved all of the ripoffs, most notebly the Alien ones. How did you recreate the radar anyway? Number 1 on my list, 5/5

Cheers,
Bigman

First, we want to thank all of you for the reviews! This film was very, very fun to shoot and we are glad that you all are enjoying it.

Big Man: the Aliens motion tracker was created by Dan (aka Hal Williams) using Photoshop and then animated in After Effects. I gave him a clip I edited out of Aliens that just showed the motion tracker and said, "I want that on that box." And he did it! He rocks! The motion tracker itself was made out of a 24 pack Coors box. lol

Now...there is the issue of the music and some have mentioned that they are not big fans of some of the song choices. We knew some might not care for it, but we wanted to dedicate this film to our favorite 80's flicks, both television and film.

Gekjas: sorry for scaring you. lol.

Well...we just wanted to touch base with the current reviews and thank you for all the positive feedback.

Wow, that movie renewed the tradition of insane puppets, after the room seris. Hilarious, some of the effects weren't the best, but probably better than I could do. Awesome.


4/5
